Walt Disney Studios is a famous company in the film industry. It is just 100 years old.

Some people worry that Walt Disney is getting old. The price of its shares is going down. Disney has a long history of adapting to new things. A long time ago, it is just one person named Disney. He likes new things like sound and color. He wants his cartoons to look real. Disney creates 12 rules to make animations better. He also uses sound and color in an unusual way.

Now, Disney must solve problems with streaming. People want to know what Disney will do next.

Difficult words: share (one of many parts of a company which people can buy), adapt (to change), cartoon (animated film).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What do you think is the best way for Disney to adapt to new demands in the streaming era?
